What’s your favourite Fairtrade thing?
This is the question we've been asking in the office today. Fairtrade Fortnight starts today, so we thought we'd list a few of our favourite things and ask readers to add their own. Most of ours seem to be food items - I wonder what that says about us?!
Commercial Manager Phil starts us off, opting for Cafe Direct's espresso. Linda, our Administrator, and I are fighting over the best bar of chocolate: Linda's gone for Green & Black's Maya Gold, whereas I'm a big fan of the classic Divine milk chocolate.
Rachel, our Head of Content, is more healthy than us two, picking the Traidcraft Apricot Geobar. Festival Director Beki tops Rachel by going with Fairtrade bananas, but can't limit herself to just one choice - she also includes Little Valley Brewery Ginger Pale Ale.
And finally, Matt, our new Programme Co-ordinator, says that his favourite Fairtrade thing is the washing basket that his mother bought him when he moved into his new house. He tries to redeem himself by claiming that 'Fairtrade coffee is also always good', but we know that this is just a cover-up - it's mum's washing basket all the way for Matt...
